Discover the Flinders Ranges
This free app is for people visiting the Ikara-Flinders Ranges NP. It includes a variety of drives and walks to locations of the park enjoyed by visitors. The park and surrounds feature iconic flora and fauna, important geological features, great arid lands scenery, Adnamuthanha art and rock engravings, and ruins from mid 19th to early 20th-century settlement including mining, cropping and grazing. All are covered in the app.
The app has been developed by the Friends of Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park, who have been volunteering in the Park since 1995. They have become intimately aware of the natural, Adnyamathanha (Ad-na-mut-na), mining and pastoral heritage of the area. This knowledge has been used to develop a comprehensive guide to the Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park with almost 500 photos, 200 points-of-interest, plus notes on geology, and a bird guide.
It provides a user-friendly way to unlock the secrets of the park, using photos, text and narration, assisted by maps, which show each point-of-interest relative to your current location, and alert you as you approach it. A key feature is that an active Internet connection is not needed when using the app, provided you have already downloaded the individual tours that interest you, before leaving home.
Included are tours of each of the major areas in the Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park, using publicly accessible roads and short walks from your car.

Additional information including Safety, How the app works, and Resources is available on the Information pages within the app.
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. We advise you to quit the app when finished.
It is recommended that you download the app ( and your selected tours) before leaving home. Internet connection in the Flinders Ranges is sparse and often slow where it is available.
